Hear French

Experience French

Speak French

Immerse yourself & acquire the French language naturally.

Experience France Differently

Immersive experiences (in French) curated & developed for travellers & expatriates that love France, French culture/lifestyle & want to be able to communicate in French without spending months conjugating verbs first.

Experiences are carefully selected by us based upon your personal interests & needs. You are supported by an Experience France (XPF) bi-lingual guide to aide your comprehension, rather than just testing or translating, helping you to progress at your own pace.

This approach physically & mentally immerses you in the subjects that interest you & helps get your ear “tuned” to French. By not getting bogged down in grammar rules or writing like Voltaire you will keep motivated & start communicating.

What we do

Multi-day tours

Immerse yourself in the French language and culture with our multi-day tours. Explore different regions of France while practicing your French in real-life situations. Our experienced guides will assist you every step of the way, ensuring a memorable and educational experience.

Single-day tours

Short on time? Our single-day tours are perfect for those looking to have a taste of French immersion without committing to a multi-day trip. Spend a day exploring a French city, engaging with locals, and practicing your language skills in a fun and immersive environment.

  5. Golf, yoga, sports/fitness coaching.

Hear it from those who’ve lived the XPF experience

Our clients, aged between 35-70, often share how they’ve struggled with traditional learning methods. But with us, they’ve broken the language barrier.

Our seasoned bilingual coaches, all native French speakers, have a passion for teaching and cultural exchange. Our crafted immersive experiences are based on your interests – from culinary arts to history. Our testimonials speak volumes: Stories of transformation, confidence, and a newfound love for the French language and culture.

Before I did my Fast Track intensive French immersion with XPF I had on-line sessions with my coach to prepare myself & also so that XPF could personalise French activities to my interests.
It really helped that the lessons were personalised to my own situation & included the audio recordings because I was able to hear the correct pronunciation & finally introduce myself; instead of some generic person from a text book

Thanks to XPF, I have discovered that I can use French to
communicate with people whilst spending a wonderful holiday in France.
Whether exploring fabulous chateaux, discovering impressionist art and interesting architecture not to mention enjoying wonderful food and wine, speaking French just felt more comfortable.

Testimonial Joanne B


The combination of an after breakfast French lesson followed by French conversation throughout the day was very helpful and improved my confidence. 
The week went so fast and it helped visualise and put into practice my French skills. 
I am now continuing with weekly lessons and am looking forward to further experiences with XPF!

Nature Knows Best

The order you learnt your mother-tongue is the best way to learn French. (Indeed any language.)

  1. Hear
  2. Experience
  3. Speak
  4. Write

Grammar, exceptions & conjugations are, of course, important but they shouldn’t be taught first. 

This is why “traditional language schools” fail for lots of people.

  • Pre-immersion Coaching

Scientifically Proven

We use the “natural approach” with Total Physical Response (TPR) as developed by Professors Krashen & Asher.*

The brain creates an association of ideas with the sounds and images from the outside world.

In addition, Sheltered Subject Matter Teaching (SSMT), focusses on what interests you, not the grammar rules &, when combined with stimulating activities, this results in more comprehensible input and natural language acquisition. (See our ‘Science Behind XPF’ page for more details.)

How is our approach different from traditional schools?

qtq 17 1 1
  1. Creating Memories not Conjugating
    Your visits are videoed & photographed, for you to refer to after your immersion & further develop your French with your coach. The science shows us that the more senses we engage the more we remember & create new vocabulary. (It’s more fun than conjugating as well!)
  2. Prioritises Comprehension
    Our #1 goal is to help you understand French & to be understood; not pass exams until you’re already communicating.
  3. No Pressure to Speak
    We don’t push you to speak before you’re ready & we certainly won’t be getting you to talk in front of a class of strangers!
  4. Curated Audio Lessons
    The most important sense when learning a new language is hearing the new sounds so you can hear when a sentence sounds right – rather than remembering a rule. (Think “an apple” vs “a apple” or “there aren’t much people over there” vs “there aren’t many people over there”). Do you know the rule?
  5. Personalised Activities
    Pre-dominantly outdoor activities based around your personal interests & circumstances.
  6. Replicates how you learnt English
    Nobody learns their first language with grammar, rules & exceptions. We learn by hearing, experiencing & then speaking – only when we’re able to communicate do we learn the rules.
